New Trailer for the 4K Restoration of Marcel Pagnol's 'The Baker's Wife'
"We went looking for your wife, and we found friendship." Janus Films has revealed a brand new trailer for the 4K restoration re-release of The Baker's Wife (originally titled La femme du boulanger), French filmmaker Marcel Pagnol's "enchanting slice-of-life comedy" that was first released (in the US) in 1940. The film tells a story about how the peace of a Provençal village is shattered when the baker's wife runs off with a handsome shepherd. In his despair, the baker becomes heartbroken and can no longer bake. The villagers organise themselves to bring the wife back to her husband and so regain their daily bread. An amusing satire about life in a tiny town. The film stars Raimu, Ginette Leclerc, Fernand Charpin, Robert Vattier, Charles Blavette, Robert Bassac, Marcel Maupi, and Alida Rouffe. Playing in NYC later this month. ›››
